Battling Lava and Snowstorms to Keep a Climate Project Alive – The New York Times

The New York Times is a great read if you think of it as comedy.

    “contorting the global climate” – even their ‘comedy’ sucks.

    “scientists have found a way to carry on”

    They always find ways to keep the money flowing.

    And the extreme hardship scientists have to suffer in Hawaii
    which was hit so hard that 9 million+ people visit Hawaii annually
    and that tourism already reached in June 2022 93% of pre covid numbers.

    Considering AGW , the massive increase in energy prices and everything else and that Hawaii can not be reached by cars these numbers shouldnt be possible.

    Fighting global warming in Hawaii is like fighting icebergs and polar bears in Sahara,
    but scientists can invent anything.

      They could have just paid the Chinese to carry CO2 monitors on all of their balloons, and to have continuous sampling across the global. It would also have given the Chinese a really good front for their spying and virus spreading, a win-win!

    I have no problem with them monitoring the concentration of atmospheric CO2 or any of the other gases in our atmosphere. That is observation and thus science.

    But spare me the Bull Shit! The NYT forgot a long time ago what a real hero is.

    What a joke.
    “He held his breath – even the carbon dioxide from his lungs might corrupt the sample”.
    So the 40,000ppm air from his lungs “MIGHT” corrupt the 400ppm sample he is taking? We are collectively spending trillions of dollars to fight an invisible fake boogey-man and they cant even spend $200 on an automatic air sample vessel that can be operated remotely from a human? You just can’t make this sh*t up!

      The volcano may be seeping enough CO2 to alter the reading, but I can build him an Arduino station that can report that for him and he doesn’t have to go up there to measure it with a balloon. How come he can’t do that?

      • Trevor says:

        But Conrad, that would cost hundreds of dollars, not tens of millions of dollars. The government has to have somewhere to spend our money.

  5. Bill says:

    OT: Amazon decided it cannot trust the US power grid to deliver, well, you know, power:

    Power grid worries force Amazon to run Oregon datacenters using fuel cells
    (And not the green hydrogen kind)

    (Geeks take note of the little white lie in the URL)

    • conrad ziefle says:

      Fuel cells are great. They don’t have the Carnot Cycle limitations, and can have above 90% efficiency. You would like to develop them for all hydrocarbon fuels, if you could.

  6. Frank says:

    When these full analyses are done, the more a grid tries to reach 100% renewable energy, the more costs will skyrocket and the more the grid will become unreliable.

    Why do so many people lie about the truth?

  7. Gamecock says:

    ‘Ever since an eruption in Hawaii halted a long-running record of carbon dioxide, scientists have found ways to carry on — atop a neighboring volcano.’

    BFD. Quarterly readings would suffice.

  8. Scott Allen says:

    The earth surface is 70% water and the oceans produce over 60% of the oxygen (converting CO2 into oxygen and carbon, phytoplankton etc.)
    The northern hemisphere makes up about 65 % of the land mass 35% in the southern hemisphere.
    Shouldn’t the increase in CO2 occur during the northern hemisphere summer, and the drop in CO2 happen in the southern hemisphere’s winter when the phtoplankton have more sun light/warmth. As even a warmer land produce more oxygen but not enough to make up the difference in size?
    Simple calculation would show that the southern hemisphere produces 53% of the oxygen and the northern hemisphere about 47%.
